What are the differences between acrea and Copic Sketch, Ciao, and Classic?

"Copic Sketch, Ciao, and Classic markers use alcohol-based dye inks. Dye inks produce color by soaking into the paper, making them ideal for coloring on paper. They are transparent and suitable for expressing drawing effects such as layering and gradation. In contrast, Copic acrea is a marker that uses water-based pigment inks. Pigment inks have larger particles than dye and stay on the paper surface. In addition, they are opaque, which means they can cover underlying colors. As a result, acrea can be used not only on paper but also on various other materials, including plastic, acrylic, film, and wood."
